North Country Public Radio Honored (5/1/02)

The Adirondack Park Agency has recognized North Country Public Radio with an Earth Day Award. The awards were given to General Manager, Ellen Rocco and Adirondack Bureau Chief, Brian Mann. Rocco was cited for her role in providing important educational programming that specifically addresses environmental issues in the Adirondack Park. Mann was honored for his thorough and informative news reporting on important environmental issues. His reports and commentary were acknowledged for their significant educational value to both Adirondack listeners and audiences nationwide.

Mann was the recipient of two other awards this past week. The National Federation of Community Broadcasters, at the 27th Annual Community Radio Conference, awarded Mann a Silver Reel in Local Public Affairs Programming for his series, "PCBs in the Upper Hudson - A Battle Fueled by Politics and Passion." "Bears Versus Humans in the High Peaks" received a Special Merit in the Local News category.
